DescriptionSa’ada wrote to his friends in the media and in politics: “In this week's Torah selection, we read about how Joshua rises to leadership with the blessing of former leader Moses. … No rotation, no primaries, no one sends out test balloons; the president and the nation are not involved. It is simple: A replacement leader is appointed and he is greeted with heartfelt congratulations. It is incumbent on a leader to retire from public life when the time is right. He must appoint a successor and advise him from his own experience, from the knowledge that he has accumulated. The test of a leader is to let others continue without him.”

Afterward, Sa’ada said in an interview with Reshet Bet Kan that he spoke to high-level Likud friends. He explained, “They are afraid to say that the time has come to think of the day after. The state is paralyzed, the people are torn. … Netanyahu must act like Moses: Come appoint a successor and bless him. There is a state to be managed and guided.”
